Hi Robert!

Think I have something for you!

Nell Aileen Haines appears on the 1930 census in Hico, Hamilton Co. Texas b. 1916 and is the daughter of John Wesley Haines. There's also an Upham family in Hico, Hamilton Co. Texas. They have 2 sons about Nell's age: J.D (18) and Clarence (16).

Checked the Texas Birth Index. Found a child born to Jack David Upham Jr. and Nell Alleene Haynes [sic]. One was born in Hamilton (1948) and one in Eastland (1946). Since it is possible they are living, I'm not comfortable with posting their names. You can email me privately if you want the names.

Some of the city directory databases at Ancestry show Nell A. Upham living in Rankin (Upton Co.) Texas in 1986 and 1992 (obviously, the last one was a posthumous listing). It would make sense that she might have lived in Upton, but died in Midland. Midland would have one of the closest large hospitals.

In the Family Search index of Texas death certificates 1964-1998, I found that J. D. Upham died in Upton Co. in May 11, 1982.

Hope this helps!
Good luck!
